St. Matthew Passion

March 03, 2016

J.S. Bach's St. Matthew Passion is revered as one of the quintessential masterpieces of western classical music. Originally premiered on Good Friday in 1727, The Passion According to St. Matthew, BWV 244, is a dramatic integration of scripture, new poetry, and great hymns of the Lutheran tradition. Bach's sublime setting creates a portrayal of the Passion that is both profoundly human and divine.

Performed by the Choir of Trinity Wall Street and Trinity Baroque Orchestra
Julian Wachner, conductor
